Draughon-Moore Ace of Clubs House

Built in 1885, this Italianate Victorian home is uniquely designed in the shape of a club because (as legend has it) money to build the house was from the winnings of a poker game with a lucky draw of the ace of clubs. Filled with original furnishings dating from the 1720s to the 1940s from the last occupants of the house, it is regarded as one of the best attractions in the country. "You rarely see a house that is so perfect in every detail and spans the years of a family having the house for 100 years." --Bob Vila, star of TV's hit "Home Again" and "America's Guide to Historic Homes" "The Ace of Clubs House is a real Texarkana treasure." --Stuart Whitehurst, of PBS' hit series "Antiques Roadshow"

The family donated not only the house but also furnishings and personal items. As a result different rooms are set up to reflect different times. The unique layout actually resulted in a useful design for living and entertaining. Reserve a tour through the Museum of Regional History.

Perot Theatre

The beautiful restored Perot Theatre, located in downtown Texarkana at 3rd and Main St, has been a landmark since 1924 when it opened as the Saenger Amusement Company's "Gateway to the Southwest" theatre. Fully restored by the City of Texarkana, TX in 1979-80, the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Texarkana natives, H. Ross Perot and his sister Bette, through the Perot Foundation, contributed much of the restoration costs in memory of his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel Ross Perot. In recognition of this contribution, the Texarkana, TX City Council renamed the building - The Perot Theatre. The theatre annually hosts the Perot Theatre Series, as well as numerous rentals throughout the year. The Perot Theatre is owned by the City of Texarkana, TX and the Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council is contracted to program and manage the theatre.

The Perot Theater is a beautiful example of theaters of the 1920s. It contains many artifacts and reminders from the past, which give the building a very interesting history. The employees are very knowledgeable about the buildings history and architecture and were able to answer all of my questions. I love hearing about how the theater was built during the golden age of theater, later turned into a Paramount movie theater and finally restored to its original glory. I had a great experience and believe this is a must see in Texarkana!

Great atmosphere, craft beer, and wood fired pizza. The owner/brewer/magician even did some tricks at our table. Great experience.
